Energy & cost improvements

The Sewer Department was awarded a Baker-Polito Adminstration Gap II energy efficiency grant, and an incentive from National Grid, to refurbish three pumps at the wastewater plant.   An anticipated 57% decrease in electricity use at the pump building and a three month return on investment are expected.  Please see attached article for more information.

Smoke Testing - August 26 - Sept 13

The Sewer Department and their contractor will be conducting smoke testing of six sub-systems within the collection system to locate sources of storm water inflow into the sanitary sewer system. The study will locate both direct and indirect connections, such as catch basins, roof drains and broken sewer pipes.  During the test harmless white smoke will be introduced into sewer manholes via smoke generating machine.  During the test, the white smoke will not enter your house unless you have defective plumbing or dried-up sink or floor drains. The smoke test should only affect your home for approximately 15 minutes.  See the public notification pages listed below for additional information:
